Wool Dryer Balls

Great tip from One Good Thing; these dryer balls speed drying and act as fabric softener.

Start with a worsted weight 100% wool yarn.  Wrap into a tight ball, about tennis ball size.  Tuck the end in securely.

Put the balls into a panty hose or stocking leg, knotting after each ball is added.  Wash in hot water, then dry in a hot dryer to felt the balls; repeat the process if needed.  Remove from the panty hose.  If desired, add a drop or two of essential oil to the balls to scent the laundry.

When drying laundry, add the felted balls to speed drying.
